  Unfortunately, I think the proliferation of TVs and stereos has
  done a lot to erode intelligence and promote mindlessness
  in our society.   Back when I was a kid, mothers used to read
  bed-time stories to pre-schoolers.  That did a lot to promote
  literacy and verbal skills.  These days it's too easy to just set
  'em down in front of the TV.
